The annual BMXA National Series will see some format changes in 2020, including a drop from seven to five rounds.
After reviewing the first two thirds of the 2019 BMXA National Series and listening to our stakeholders BMXA has made the decision to make a number of changes for the 2020 season.
The changes for 2020 include, but are not limited to:
The 2020 BMXA National Series will take place in five states / territories.
|Round 1||Shepparton, Victoria||Friday, January 31|
|Round 2||Nerang, Queensland||Saturday, February 29|
|Round 3||Canberra, Australian Capital Territory||Saturday, April 25|
|Round 4||TBC, New South Wales||Saturday, August 8|
|Round 5||TBC Metro Adelaide, South Australia||Saturday, October 24|
BMXA’s National Officiating Director Paul Connors said the changes to the series came following feedback from members and a review of the commerciality of the series.
“The feedback that we have received is that seven rounds is too many for the majority of our members to attend and we have acted accordingly,” Connors said.
“Regardless of the change, we are still encouraging riders to compete in as many national series rounds as suits them. If a rider is unable to compete in the whole series, that’s okay, they are still more than welcome to enter one, two, three or four rounds.
“We have also worked to align our nationally run events with local events in the respective hosts states and encourage both local and interstate riders to support both days of racing.
“There are several other areas where we are looking to make improvements that support the needs of riders and their families and we will continue to evolve our nationally supported events.
“In the future we hope to have a more stable and commercially viable group of events that will allow members and the national organisation to build on for many years.”
More details on the 2020 national series will be announced in due course.
